Virgin Mobile says the HTC One S will be ready for “activation in-stores and online on Thursday, May 17, 2012”

Yesterday Virgin Mobile went live with the registration for the upcoming HTC One S – an Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device that has Beats Audio integrated into it. The terms and conditions of their contest page says that it has a retail value of $600, but somehow I didn’t see the line before it, which clearly states the possible release date: “Each prize consists of an HTC One S smartphone from Virgin Mobile, which will be available for activation in-stores and online on Thursday, May 17, 2012.”

Of course release dates can change at any moment. So there you go… we’ll have more info soon!
